review: Neon Graveyard by Vicki Pettersson

Book description:
Once she was a soldier for the Light, the prophesied savior who would decide the outcome of the eternal conflict raging in the dark corners of her glittering hometown.

Now Joanna Archer is just another mortal – still born of an impossible union of Shadow and Light … still hunted by both – and carrying the unborn child of a lover held captive by a depraved demon goddess. Joining forced with a band of rogue Shadow agents, Joanna’s ready to storm the stronghold of her demonic foe, risking everything to enter this ghastly, godforsaken realm. Because in a world that has stripped her of her power, identity, and fortune, Joanna has nothing left to lose – except her baby, her future, and the epic war poised to consume the city.

Review:
Joanna Archer is now a mortal. She was once a part of the Light, and she was supposed to be the savior who would control who was going to win the battle over Las Vegas. She is fighting now to save her unborn child and the man she loves, who is stuck in the grasp of a goddess. Who is she fighting? It seems as though she is fighting everyone, but the main culprit happens to be her father, the Tupla and leader of the dark forces.  Joanna has to prove herself to those around her that still possess powers that were taken when she was turned back into mortal. This proves difficult at times, but she still has some magical abilities that can control how she looks and also she is able to use magical weapons that can fight off the evil that is attacking. This book is a battle between what is considered good and evil. Can she save all those she needs to?
This was a good action filled adventure book that kept me super interested and wanting to get to the end to see if the character is able to pull off her quest. I have not read the other books in the series though, so at times I felt like I was confused by characters attachments, and the explanations of the characters in the book. I do think that I was still able to connect with the main character enough so that I was still rooting for her in the end. If you are looking for something that is a different spin on good verses evil, with an outstanding urban fantasy setting, this is a great choice for you. The characters are ultimately fighting for the things that mean that most to them and the people they love!
